First of all, i didnt know where to put this so its going in 'components'

Now, hi everyone im looking to build a custom gaming pc that will be able to run most games on atleast medium/high settings with no lag. But im not looking to spend heaps of money on one, max $800 so if anyone can put one together i would be happy, if you can make it 800 including OS monitor etc, that would be amazing, but if 800 just for the system, that would be fine too :)  Also, my preferred online retailer would be 'PC Case Gear' ... Yeah, thanks :)

it's the best Value build of you don't mind the extra $20

it's amazing for gaming , you can run all current & upcoming games on Ultra with Good FPS and no lag .

if you wan't to cut down the price , you can go for the HD 7870 instead but keep in mind it has lower performance and you can't run all the games on Ultra ( actually it's only Crysis 3 $ metro last light which you cant run on ultra with no lag ) it's good choice too but the HD 7950 has better performance for more ~ $30 only .
